October 20, 2022
CWN Editor's Note: Flooding in Nigeria, African’s most populous nation, has killed over 600 people and displaced over 1.3 million, the Associated Press reported.
“In greeting the pilgrims present from Nigeria, I think of the violent rains that have fallen on their country in these days, causing flooding, numerous deaths and tremendous damage,” Pope Francis said on October 19, at the conclusion of his general audience.
“Let us pray for all who have lost their lives and for everyone affected by this devastating natural disaster,” the Pope continued. “May these, our brothers and sisters, experience our solidarity and the support of the international community.”
